“When I shop, the world gets better, and the world is better, but then it’s not, I need to do it again”
Then the bill mail comes..
“They said I was a valued customer, now they send me hate mail”
That’s what Rebecca Bloomwood says in Confession Of A Shopaholic (2009). Did it ever happen to you once? or twice? or more?
But however, we can’t deny it, shopping makes us happy. at the time.
I’m a seventeen year old girl who likes shopping so much and I haven’t earned money yet. When you heard that, I knew I must have been judged that I’m just a parent-s-money-spender. Well, I’m not.
Never earned money.
But shops a lot.
That’s why I’ll be giving you some shopping tips where you can shop branded clothes with less pennies but you’ll get more shimmies. Here you go :
1. DO NOT Bring Much Money
“Oh my gosh! I love this shoes so much, but oh wait. this is expensive and I don’t bring enough money for it.”
That’s how it goes, you have very enough money in your pocket. Enough for shopping in H&M/Stradivarius/New Look/Forever21 or whatever but you only get t-shirt, accessories, skirts and NOT JEANS, NOT A COAT, NOT EVEN A BAG. But you have a possibility to get the NOTs if there’s a big sale in certain stores.
2. Buy What You Need
This part is the hardest, isn’t it? Because when we enter the store, we smell the typical smell, the nice servants welcome us and notice the sale poster. That’s incredibly tempting!
But if you buy what you don’t even need, I guarantee you that you’ll regret it at last.
3. Buy What You Don’t Have
Ah maybe this one will relieve you. From the title seems specific already, so I think I don’t have to explain about this one.
4. Do The 50:50 Thing With Your Mom/Dad/Sister/Brother
This one is working, especially if you do it with your mom. Just don’t do it to your boyfriend or girlfriend, it makes you look like a material person and that’s embarrassing. But make sure, none of them is stingy. Just make a puppy face and say, “This is so cute, Mom. It’s good for school. Mind to contribute? Please please please.” (school is the best reason because parents love it when their kids talking about school). There are 2 possibilities when you do this, you mom might to contribute or your mom will pay it all for you.
5. Monthly Cash
If you usually get monthly cash from your parents for school or something. Save 50% for school and save another 50% for shopping. But don’t be tempted with your thick pocket and use your school cash for shopping. That’s so wronggg..
So that’s basically what I usually do for the sake of shopping. I never spend my parent’s money for my hobby but I save some money I get from them to do my hobby. So, good luck on doing those tips shopaholics! And you’re welcome 🙂
